Reset and Restore iPhone to Original Default Factory Settings with Recovery Mode iPhone display freezing? iPhone doesn’t detect by or appear in iTunes? iPhone cannot sync with iTunes on PC or Mac? Cannot make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web? Or worse, iPhone simply won’t turn on and does not respond to tap or button press? If the problem still persists after you have reseted the iPhone, or tried various iPhone troubleshooting, it may be worthwhile to invoke recovery mode to restore iPhone to default factory settings, the original state as when you first received and unwrapped the phone.

If you did a hard reset and it still doesn't connect, not even to windows explorer, you most likely have a broken logic board or dock connector, you can try to replace those components yourself, there are guides websites online that teach you iPhone repair skills, but you should have a little tech background to embark on such endeavors.

Try putting the phone in forced recovery mode by turning off the phone. then hold down the home button and insert the usb. do not let go of the home button until you see that itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode
-it should let you restore
-if not you probably have a hardware issue
-if its hardware sell 2g on the internet and upgrade to 3g for 199 from att.

Try this, it worked for me once. Keep your iPhone connected to your computer while you manually perform a windows update (be sure to select custom and install available software). Then restart your system with the phone still connected to see if it detects your phone.
